Check out Celebrate which is sadly the last song Whitney Houston recorded before her untimely death in February at the age of 48. The song appears on the soundtrack for the soon to be released film Sparkle and features Jordin Sparks. …. Rest In Peace Whitney Houston.
It has been announced that Nas will be headlining on the 1xtra stage at the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend 2012 on Sunday June 24 (Hackney Marshes). Click HERE for more information. Finally an artist on the bill to get excited about and who is worth seeing. I love this man.
Check out the new single Girl Talk from rapper Ikes featuring Scorcher and Jermaine Riley. …. Girl Talk is your usual UK fare. A “seductive” track made for the ladies with a guy singing the hook and a touch of auto-tuning. It’s not my cup of tea at all. It just lacks something.

British actor Idris Elba aka Driis has turned his attention to music again. The single Private Garden is produced by 9th Wonder. Via Soul Culture Private Garden isn’t a terrible single and it’s well produced, but I’ve said this before and I will say it again Idris should stick to what he is really good at – ACTING! Your thoughts please. Hit or Miss?
